YOU DON'T CLAP LOSERS

Australia, 1975 (MIFF 1976)

Director: John Power

A minor case of vandalism brings two lonely people together. Single parents Martin and Kay meet when their sons, Joe and Steven, appear in the Children's Court on a delinquency charge. As their relationship deepens Martin tells Kay that he used to like being best in everything he did, but now, a Council worker in Sydney, living with his aging mother, Katherine, he has little ambition except for his greyhound, Country Lass. She may win the money he needs to return to the country.
